Default 1998 ezgo only goes forward

any thoughts on how to get cart going in reverse. last summer before person decided to sell it I did try changing the micro switches but that didn't help. now I'm thinking on buying it if i can get it to go in reverse

DCS or series? Shifter knob will be by your leg. Series will have a rod going to another box. DCS will have a silver puck

Sorry it only goes forward.. research says it's a dcs without the bar. silver puck style the one with micro switch on either side.

Not Series. DCS. And you are describing a very typical controller failure. THe control has a forward side and a reverse side. THe Forward side wears out first because it is used more.
Swap controller F1 and F2 (10g black and white wire on top) and it will run forward only no reverse. Neighbor ran his this way for a year before breaking down and upgrading.

thanks Scotty learning more thru research. yup DCS till i charged it enough to move it. it was forward only no reverse. I couldn't remember from the summer. I will try swapping those leads and see what happen after a full over night charge

Does this still apply with just forward.
